Last week the radiant floor heating tubes were installed in the basement. We've grown to love radiant heat, which, simply put, warms the floors in your home, and performs as the heat source.
The tubes are installed over insulation and are then encased in concrete or Gyp-Crete. The tubes will eventually have warm water pumping through them, which will heat the concrete and create cozy floors. I've always suffered from incredibly cold hands and feet so this type of heat is a real treat for me.
Once the basement floors are poured, we'll move on to the framing this week. We're looking forward to seeing it take shape!
